Set against the azure seascape of Phuket, the prestigious Phuket King's Cup Regatta returns from December 2nd to 9th, 2023.

A testament to the competitive spirit of sailing and a significant booster for Thailand's sport tourism, the event, taking place at Beyond Kata. One of Southeast Asia's most prestigious international sporting events, the regatta is renowned for its perfect blend of high-calibre sailing and rich social experiences, contributing significantly to the local economy and tourism industry.

The event also underscores Thailand's commitment to nurturing young talent with the International Dinghy Classes, especially through the Optimist Challenge for sailors under 15. Over five exhilarating days, participants and visitors can look forward to a series of races interwoven with cultural festivities and opportunities for community engagement, all set within Phuket's breathtaking maritime backdrop.

The Phuket King's Cup Regatta is not merely a competition but a celebration of Thailand's marine splendour and a catalyst for cross-cultural camaraderie and exploration.
